Cool Idea: Skate Deck Art

Stretched canvas doesn't show signs of going out of style any time soon, but it's not the only place for paintings. Shannon of FotoFlat, a photoblog showcasing small details throughout her home, shared this photo of a skate deck painted and hung in her home as artwork. She says her boyfriend had "wanted to hang a skateboard (his first love) in the hall as art for as long as [they've] lived together." So they commissioned a friend to paint this abstract portrait on a never-been-built deck they had lying around. I think the shape of the deck is ideal for a figure painting, and it's more intriguing graphically than a canvas frame. The medium also says more about the couple's interests than any standard canvas would. I love it! Want to share small details of your own home? Join my group Lovely Little Vignettes.

What a great "canvas" for this artwork. I love how it's hung next to the mirror!
